Quebec The St. Lawrence River left its bed Wednesday morning in Quebec City, causing traffic problems on Champlain and Sainte-Anne Boulevards.
Boulevard Champlain is currently closed between Quai Saint-André and the Gilmour coast. The river also invaded Boulevard Sainte-Anne in the area of the Félix-Leclerc highway. To date, only one house has been evacuated in each of these areas.
A team from the City of Québec Fire Protection Service is on site, and will remain so until the situation is restored, spokeswoman Annie Marmen said. “At the moment, there’s nothing to worry about,” she says.
The St. Lawrence River was at high tide at 9 am on Wednesday morning.
